My memories of Nyonya Chang (Nyonya Rice Dumpling)

My late grandmother made the best Kueh Chang (Nyonya Rice Dumpling) no doubt about that. I remember as a kid, I looked forward excitedly to that time of the year to eat her Kueh Chang. She’ll made them by the boxes and take a bus from Melaka to where we were back then, in Lumut, Perak as my father was with the Navy.  I anticipated her arrival with great delight as I know though I […]


Thomas & Friends Journey Beyond Sodor!

Thomas and Friends has invaded Sunway Pyramid and I brought the boys there today to join Thomas on his journey beyond Sodor! Here’s a video of the activities the boys participated in during their adventures with Thomas & Friends: Ethan and Ayden got to ride on Thomas around the mall.  They also went on a Space adventure.  Slide into ‘shark infested’ ocean.  Sharks are friends, not food. Now let’s tell the shark that these boys are […]

Cook with Ayden: Sweet Potato in Gula Melaka dessert

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of carotenes. We need carotenes as our body converts it into Vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for good eye vision and healthy skin; especially beneficial for school-going children. I try to include sweet potatoes into the boys’ diet as often as possible. Sometimes they eat it steamed on its own but at times when we have more time to spare, I’ll prepare this delicious Sweet Potato in Gula Melaka drink for […]


Quick trip back to Melaka and a BBQ

We took advantage of the long weekend to make a quick trip back to Malacca to visit my parents. We went back on Sunday as Saturday was a busy day for us. Traffic was smooth and we arrived about 2pm. While having lunch, my mom informed me that she will be going over to my uncle’s (mom’s elder brother) house (a stone’s throw away) for a BBQ dinner.  I promptly Whatsapp my uncle to ask […]


To The Dentist We Go Again

If you have been following our progress, you’ll know that Ayden has been to the dentist numerous times as his teeth are very fragile and chips off easily. He had filling done on his teeth a couple of times but some eventually dropped off.  Last weeked we were at the dentist again.  This time Ayden needed to get only one filling done, thank goodness for that.  Since Ayden was done rather quickly, the Daddy took advantage […]


WTF – What Tasty Food @ Bangsar

I remember fondly back in those days when I was still living with my parents, my mom would cook vegetarian dishes every 1st and 15th of the month. I am not too sure the reason behind it as I was still in school back then and it was not a norm for me to question her choice of dishes.  Eating less meat can reap big health and environmental benefits but my family are not vegetarians, […]


Cook with Ayden: Steamed Chicken with Minced Bean Paste

Little Chef Ayden is back with this very simple recipe we learned from my mom. She often prepares this at home but instead of using pork ribs as she always does, we used chicken.  Steamed Chicken with Minced Bean Paste aka Taucu Ingredients: 6 Chicken Drumstick 5 Cloves Garlic (pounded) 1 Red Chili (pounded) 1 inch ginger (pounded) 1 tbs salted minced bean paste (taucu) Method: 1) Pound garlic, ginger and chili. 2) Add the pounded […]


Ayden’s Audition

I received an invitation on Friday night to bring Ayden over for an audition for a local Kids Talk Show today. They were scouting for kids aged 3 to 8 years old. I believe it will be a good experience for Ayden as he has never attended an audition before so I agree to it. I am also eager to see Ayden’s reaction to all these.  Today, we woke up as usual, got dressed and […]


Bake with Ayden: Rice Cooker Cheesecake

My family loves cheesecake a lot but we’ve never baked one ourselves as we don’t have an oven. We came across a rice cooker cheesecake recipe online recently and got excited to try it out. The only problem is, the recipe from Dingo Food is not in English and when I clicked on the translated version, it requires the use of FOUR DOGS! I reckon it will be such a hassle to catch 4 dogs. Moreover, […]


Buka Puasa Buffet 2017: The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur

This year, The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur stirs up a diverse range of delicacies at its casual dining outlet, Charcoal for the breaking of fast buffet. From 26 May to 24 June 2017, The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur takes the gratification once again to chaperone families and friends who are planning get-togethers during this blissful season with their delightful smorgasbord, ‘Menikmati Aneka Judah di Saujana’, commencing conjointly with the first day of the observance.

Paint with Ayden: The Benefits of Painting for Children

Being home-schooled, one of the activities I frequently do with Ayden at home is painting. Painting provides endless benefits to children. Even myself as an adult find painting therapeutic. Here are some of the benefits of painting for children: Hand-Eye Coordination – This is a very important skill at their age; to be able to coordinate their hand movements at par with their vision. It may sound easy to us but for young children, practice makes […]


Our Favourite at Skippys Pizza

We revisited one of our favourite pork joint, Skippys Pizza at Damansara Uptown today. Skippys Pizza The Real Pork Pizza Co. Address: 33, Jalan SS 21/56b, Damansara Utama, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia Phone: +60 3-7733 0255 * Archive pic taken during my visit last year. Read about it here. The first thing I noticed is they removed the glass panel that was previously there last year. When I asked the staff why is this so, he […]


Cook with Ayden: Dhal Curry

Today Lil’ Chef Ayden will be cooking Dhal Curry. Dhal Curry has always been the boys’ favourite whenever we eat Roti Canai so today I thought, why not guide him to cook it himself? The heat level of Dhal Curry can be adjusted according to your preference. If your kid can’t tolerate spicy stuffs, then go low on the chili or you may omit it altogether. Dhal is simply the Indian word for lentils. I […]


Fun time for the boys

This is a delayed post of the recent week-long school holidays. I only got the time to blog about it today as I wasn’t feeling well the past week.  Kids these days are very lucky. Malls in major cities especially the Klang Valley will always have some fun activities for them during the school holidays and these activities are usually complimentary.  After we got back from Penang, we brought the kids to 1 Utama to enjoy […]


Bake with Ayden: Steamed Banana Cupcakes

We love bananas. It is one of our favourite local fruits. Banana is KING when it comes to nutrition. It is power-packed with essential vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium and many more. Potassium helps to maintain a healthy balance of fluids in the body and as an electrolyte, potassium stimulates nerves and muscles throughout our body. I eat banana everyday before going for my evening jog. Last week, it rained almost every evening deterring us from […]
